As part of the never-ending quest to bring you University of Kentucky news in the most ridiculous manner possible, I comb the Twitter-verse each week for the funniest, oddest, and sometimes, nearly illegible tweets from your favorite players and personalities. Basically, I read Twitter so you don’t have to. Without further ado, here are the best tweets of the week.
In the wake of Kentucky’s loss to Indiana, Rex Chapman caused quite the stir on Twitter by calling out Kentucky fans for their “low-rent behavior” (his words, not mine!). Now, Rex has tweeted about this all week, but I’m sick of scrolling through his Twitter feed (seriously, he tweets more than any person alive), so here is a series of tweets from Tuesday that I think sum up his argument:
Do you agree or disagree with Rex? If you tweet to Rex that you disagree, there is a 95% chance that he will retaliate.
While younger people may not know her work, Eric Bledsoe remembers Ashley Judd just fine. And vice versa:
@EBled24 I kind of am, aren’t I? Except I am, what, like 20 years older than you? I still remember your right….and left cheeks, though!

Ashley! What would Dario say?
It’s finals week at UK, which you would think might lead to a slow Tweet Beat week, but au contraire! Twitter, Facebook, and the interwebs are designed for procrastination, and even our dedicated Wildcats couldn’t resist their sultry siren song. Unfortunately, they mostly tweeted about…finals:
To everyone about to take this PS 101 final, may God help us all.

Eloy Vargas took a break from finals with a relaxing hot tub soak with Jarrod Polson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist:

Ladies, stop drooling.
Speaking of MKG, he continues to be the most lovable Wildcat on the team with tweets like this:
You Win some You Lose some, As long as the OutCome is Income- We learned a lot being this young of a team. Love My Team!
— Mike Kidd-Gilchrist (@MikeGillie14) December 11, 2011
MKG’s impressive performances this season surely have his confidence brimming, which you know, never hurts with the ladies, right Michael?
Ugly girl-friend means no confidence

So does Wayne Turner (props for the “Bounce Back” reference):

Looks like Patrick Patterson was thinking the same thing we were when the buzzer sounded:

— Patrick Patterson (@pdpatt) December 11, 2011
Enough of that! On Saturday night, we face Tennessee-Chattanooga, and, as you would expect, Twany Beckham is pumped about his debut:
I’m supa excited about everything at this moment…jus a happy kid…living life
— Twany Beckham (@TwanyB10_FOF) December 13, 2011
One of my new favorite Twitter people (sorry, I can’t bring myself to say “tweeps” just yet), Sam Malone, thinks dressing up for class is for the birds:
What are the benefits of dressing up in a dress shirt and pants for class? For the ladies? Feel smarter? Fashion thing? Only outfit? #relax
— Sam Malone (@SamMaloneuk13) December9, 2011
Sam just can’t get enough of his classmates’ fashion choices:
#shoutout to the kid sitting infront of me wearing a sleeveless shirt during a final exam in the middle of winter
— Sam Malone (@SamMaloneuk13) December 15, 2011
Sam, it’s the South…where people wear flip flops and short skirts even when it snows. Just syh and move on.
Everyone take a minute and wish Ravi Moss a speedy recovery from his recent wisdom teeth surgery. Ravi, I hope you take full advantage of opportunity to be lazy and live on soft foods. Maybe Coach Cal can send over some Orange Leaf?
Thanks for prayers. Wasn’t On any nerves. Did tell the nurse christina that was my first loves name under anesthia and she was pretty.#drunk

In the aftermath of the Cincinnati/Xavier fight and post-fight press conference, Bobby Perry asks a very important question:
What’s the difference between a thug and a gangster?
— Bobby Perry (@BobbyPerry13) December 10, 2011
Well, now we know how Nazr Mohammad feels about the “rush the court” topic. #amen
— Nazr Mohammed (@NazrMohammed) December 12, 2011
I’m now convinced Josh Clemons only tweets about food.
Food takes all my money. I’m constantly hungry.
— Josh Clemons (@J_Clem20) December 12, 2011
Okay ladies, now is the time to ask for those earrings you’ve been wanting.

This week, Aaron Boyd learned how girls will use social media as the newest method to manipulate their men:
Girl asked me to like her relationship change on facebook so she could show her ex what hes missing 0_0 that how yall do ladies?
— Aaron Boydâ„¢ (@Oh_Boyd) December 12, 2011
Congrats to Andre Woodson, who finally got his d3gree from UK this week.

NOOO! Don’t go, Winston! What will I do without your inspirational and romantic tweets? (insert obligatory “smdreads” here)
Hey Morgan Newton: A-MEN!

— Morgan Newton (@monewt12) December 10, 2011
Also, we both watch too much television. But it’s okay, so does Perry Stevenson:
Football wives, basketball wives, and now baseball wives? Hmm.. Next up, Soccer wives? Maybe bowling?
— Perry Stevenson (@PSteve2122) December 15, 2011
Now that the NBA’s back, I’ve got three words for you: New Jorts City. So far, Jorts just can’t get enough of being a Knick:
i will bring energy,toughness, focus, and most importantly heart
— Josh Harrellson (@BigJorts55) December 12, 2011
When in doubt, Ramel Bradley turns to music to figure out the ladies:
Valerie on blast right now!!! Got my Amy Winehouse, Mary J Blige, & Adele Mix playing 😉 Tryna figure u women out LOL #GoodMusic
— Ramel Smooth Bradley (@dreamsmooth) December 13, 2011
Hey Ramel, just keep that Adele CD on loop. Once the tears start flowing (and they will), you’ll figure it out.
This week’s “Tweet that makes you go Aww” was easy:

In the “Bookie Tweet of the Week,” Bookie shares a little too much about his journey back to New Orleans…
